January 16-20

Next week is Welby Fitness Week, Jan. 22-26. 
POWW has planned several exciting and engaging activities for all of the students to get active.
Today a purple sheet was sent home for your family to take the Eat a Rainbow Challenge next week.
The sheets are to be returned next Friday, and counted up for class points.
This is a spirited school-wide competition, so please support our class as our students enjoy                 " Committing to Getting Fit!", the theme of the week.

Please log on to the website for details about how to support the school.

The students' Fitness Week shirts will be handed out on Monday morning. The class will receive bonus class points for the week if every student is wearing their shirt or our class color every day (light blue).

All are welcome to cheer on our class on Friday from 8:10-9:50 while they run their Fitness Run laps. The students will enjoy a snack together after their run.  Hope to see you there!

Thank you for all of your continued support!!

Happy Thanksgiving

Dear Room 5 Families,

     As this season of thankfulness and gratitude is upon us, I am compelled to share my deep gratitude for each of you and all of your support.

     It is a joy to spend my days with your children as they make discoveries, deep connections and grow in their social emotional development each and every day. They make me laugh with their pure and simple humor. They make me smile with their kindness and thoughtfulness for one another and for me. They make me proud of their perseverance in all things. They are stronger than they know, more creative that one could imagine and more independent than they were in August. They are beautiful people and I am grateful for each and every one of them.

     Enjoy your time with family and friends this Thanksgiving holiday!!

                                                             Mrs. Milman
